Statement of Faith

God

We believe in one true God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:1-2; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:6; John 1:1-3; Acts 5:3,4

Jesus Christ

We believein Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, conceived of the HolySpirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life andvoluntarily atoned for our sins by dying on the cross as oursubstitute. He was bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven where,at His Father's right hand, He is our High Priest and Mediator.
